Metin Seven’s review published on Letterboxd:
Maniac Cop is one of those movies I remember from my childhood videotheque visits. I was fascinated by the gloomy VHS cover in those days, but never saw the film. So in 2015 I finally saw Maniac Cop. I had prepared myself for a very campy pulp movie, and it is, but it's also a satirical statement against police violence and corrupt politicians. Add 1980s cult heroes Bruce Campbell and Tom Atkins to this, and the result was reasonably entertaining as opposed to the trash I expected.
